August 15 @ 4:00 pm
Join us at Convocation, the official ceremony welcoming all new students to Mines!
Just like graduation symbolizes the end of a student’s university experience, Convocation marks the beginning of a student’s academic career at Mines. This is an opportunity for you and your family to participate in your first official event as an Oredigger. You will hear from faculty, alumni and fellow students about their Mines experience and learn about the rich traditions of our university. The ceremony is followed by a barbecue where you can connect with faculty, alums and students while enjoying Mines pep band music and snapping a photo or two with our mascots.
Due to limited seating in Lockridge Arena, each new Oredigger is allowed two guests at Convocation. We will have an alternate viewing area set up on Kafadar Commons for additional guests. All family and friends are invited to join us at the welcome barbecue on Kafadar Commons immediately following Convocation at 5 p.m. New students do not need a ticket for entry into Lockridge Arena. Students will assemble on the South IM Field at 3:15 p.m. to lineup for the processional into the arena.
When: Thursday, August 15 at 4 p.m.
Where: Lockridge Arena (inside the Student Recreation Center)
Get your free tickets for Convocation here! (limit two guests per student)
Welcome BBQ immediately following (on Kafadar Commons next to the CoorsTek Center for Applied Science and Engineering).
